Marvelous: No Current Plans to Localize Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura

This is Niche Imports. In this column, we regularly cover games that haven’t been announced for western audiences yet. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Now that Marvelous has released Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura for the Nintendo Switch via the eShop in Japan, many fans have begun asking their localization branch if the game will hit western shores. The company quickly responded, but not in the way fans hoped.

Marvelous confirmed there are currently no plans to localize the game for western audiences. However, it’s worth pointing out this has been the case with most of their Senran Kagura titles, where the publisher confirms a western release sometime later.

For now, if you really want to get your hands on a more intimate Senran Kagura experience complete with HD rumble, you can still get the game via the Japanese eShop.

Do you want to see Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura released in the west? Sound off in the comments below! Also make sure to let Marvelous know you want a western release for the game!
